As if we needed a new task to add to the end of each day....
we seem to have acquired one....
We decided over the weekend,
that it is time for the turkeys to free range a bit.
We have been reluctant to allow them to leave their yard
out of fear that we would never get them back in at night.
So, each evening, before dark,
we find them and herd them back to safety.
Last night Tom and Chuck were cavorting with the chickens in the chicken pen.
Meanwhile, Edith was nibbling grass near the turkey pen.
With the help of Amanda and Sam
we herded the two male turkeys out of the chicken pen...
Sam is a great farm dog,
and loves to work.
He is respectful of the birds,
and they have no fear of him.
Free ranging turkeys is not turning out as we had planned.
It seems that turkeys are much like guineas and less like chickens.
That is....the are a little short in the brain department.
I thought I would share a few pictures of our Easter fun with you.
Our Easter treat for Tyler is this new farm wagon...
which he loved riding in.
Almost as much as his Mommy loved it!
Especially when his Uncle Andy took them for a ride...
It was a wonderful family day...
and we got a short break from the rain, too!
